Ivy Tech sets Go Ivy Day at Peru Instructional Site

Prospective students can move easily through entrance process for spring semester

PERU, Ind. — Anyone interested in entering Ivy Tech Community College for spring semester classes – from a high school student who will graduate mid-year to an adult ready to return to school – is invited to “Go Ivy Day” from 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18 at the Peru Instructional Site. The event will offer an opportunity to speed through the enrollment process and be ready to begin college study Jan. 12.

The session, at the instructional site at 425 W. Main St., will include completing the application process, going through new student orientation, and beginning the financial aid process (starting with the FAFSA) and the academic placement assessment process. Students are encouraged to invite their parents and to bring along friends who may be considering Ivy Tech as a next step in their plans.

“This ‘Go Ivy’ event offers a great way to quickly complete most of the steps toward enrollment,” said Theresa Murphy, executive director of the Peru Instructional Site. “We will have Ivy Tech staffers on hand to help answer questions about all the steps in the process to be ready to begin college study when spring semester begins Jan. 12, including the opportunity to meet the Dec. 1 priority date to assure financial aid can be in place on the first day of classes.”

Part of the Ivy Tech enrollment process involves academic placement assessment to evaluate applicants’ reading, writing and math skills so they can be placed in appropriate classes. Those attending the Nov. 18 event should bring high school transcripts or scores from the PSAT, SAT or ACT examinations, if available. Specified minimum scores will serve as documentation of skills. Those students needing to take the Accuplacer placement assessments will have the opportunity for preparation at the event. More information on the assessment process can be found at www.ivytech.edu/assessment.
